By Mary Jane Pittilla

Lucy Thomas, Head of Retail, Auckland Airport

Asia Pacific Travel Retail Association (APTRA) has welcomed Auckland Airport as a new board member, representing the airport voice for Oceania, with representation from Lucy Thomas, its Head of Retail.

Auckland International Airport is one of New Zealand’s largest publicly listed businesses and is one of only a few airports to have an advanced digital retail strategy, operated through its online airport duty/tax free retailer mall model.

Sunil Tuli, President of APTRA welcomed the appointment, saying: “Auckland Airport and Lucy are very welcome additions to the APTRA board. As the airport’s Head of Retail, Lucy brings invaluable experience and perspective in understanding solutions to the current challenges facing the industry alongside her personal knowledge in terms of the new retail thinking and strategies that Auckland Airport is renowned for. I’d like to thank Lucy and Auckland Airport for nominating themselves to contribute and be part of the APTRA Board.”

Auckland Airport replaces Melbourne Airport which stepped down from the board last month.
